Earlier in the year we evaluated basketball in our D1 programs. Other than Purdue the other D1 programs sucked this year. I guess I'd pick IU a distant second, followed by Butler and ND. Next would be IPFW and IUPUI. The bottom dwellers would be Valpo, Indiana State, Evansville, and Ball State.
Which means Valpo no Fazekas,Evill no Feehan,IU no Romeo & we have everybody back?
Is that a question because the answer is "No, we don't have everybody back."
We lose 2 starters, which make up 2 of our top 4 scorers (including our leading scorer), our second-leading rebounder, top shot blocker, top assist man. Of course, those two were also our top 2 turnover machines this past season so maybe it's not all bad.
Of course, the big returnee is the coach, who's never shown a great ability to seamlessly integrate new players into the fold and with 2-3 players possibly starting who've never been on the court for us it likely will not be a smooth transition.
